Nearly two thousand years ago, 
the angels heralded the coming of a 
Savior who would satisfy the 
yearnings in the hearts of men. 
With this coming, the whole 
course of human events changed 
and the answer to all human prob- 
lems was available for the ask-

who came. As emissaries at this 
season we direct our thoughts and

many services to local, state, and 
national organizations. One of the

the local level was the impressive

class officers of Roosevelt Junior 
College, on November 15. Miss 
RJC also received her coveted 

Each officer was given a solemn 
oath and told his individual re- 
sponsibilities with reference to his 
position. Attorney Smith was 
quite dynamic in his approach as 
he told the officers that the Roose- 
velt Junior College is depending on 
them to honor their position of 
leadership since the student body 
has the utmost confidence in their 
ability to lead. He pointed out also 
the honor which goes along with 
worthwhile leadership. With this 
the 1960-61 S.G.A. officers were 
installed and wished a successful 

Sincere gratitude was expressed 
to Attorney Smith for bringing to

meaningful service.

Tomorrow Without Fear 

In the past, America has lived the very image of President 
Roosevelt's phrase, "We have nothing to fear but fear itself." 

But the very foundation of these words was shaken on October 7, 

1957, when the Soviet Union, a nation 
asl -;S££©5Ms!!M most Westerners thought of as lagging 
scientifically, sent aloft the first earth 

Instead of being an occasion for re- 
joicing over a great scientific feat, it 
was an occasion for fear and uncertain- 
ty. Before October 6th, almost no one 
questioned America's great scientific 
superiority. Those who love America 
saw this event not as an end but as a 
beginning to the replacement of our 
complacency with a new perspective. 

This very incident presents to us, the 
college student, the greatest challenge 
of this decade. If we are to survive or 
if humanity is to survive, we must 
meet this challenge educationally. 

America needs a new insight. If we 
are to achieve this new insight or vision, 
we must be examined as an instrument 
of America's future. 

Today we are presented with an un- 
precedented situation which offers to 
us a broader challenge. Over 98 million 
non-communist people in Africa and South Asia are awakening from 
poverty and insecurity to seek their independence. They are demand- 
ing of their governments rapid progress toward expanded opportunity, 
dignity and justice. 

These countries need teachers, lawyers, engineers, scientists, 
doctors, nurses and economic experts. We are challenged to prepare 
ourselves to occupy these positions. And if America's youth do not 
fulfill this challenge, then we shall fear communist domination of 
these under-developed nations. 

As one can see, there are challenges to the American students 
from all fields of endeavor. The world challenges us to prepare our- 
selves to meet the demands of the future. 

Meet these challenges today, and tomorrow we shall have nothing 
to fear.

A Message from The S.G.A. President 

To the student body of Roosevelt Junior College : 

"Now that the Student Government election is over, the Council 
is ready to commence a year of diligent work. I firmly believe that 
your decision in each instance was a very wise one. I know that I voice 
the sentiment of each officer when I say that we will endeavor 
assiduously to make this one of the best years of the Council at 
Roosevelt Junior College 

"With such an efficient governing body as you have elected, many 
things can be done to aid you and many things can be done by you to 
assist us. Whenever you have any problems that cannot be solved 
alone or any ideas that might be of value to the student body, please 
let the Ciuncil know about them immediately. Likewise, the Council 
will let you know its problems so that you may help to solve them. 
The Council certainly trusts that the student body will cooperate in 
every way to make this one of the most memorable and delightful 
years of the Roosevelt Junior College. 

"Let us turn to another very important subject which is worthy 
of decision. For the past nine weeks you have worked diligently to 
earn your compensation for your work. Although your pay will not 
be given in money, you will be rewarded handsomely. During these 
nine weeks, many of you have not earned the pay that meets your 
satisfaction. However, there is enough time for your complacency to 
be corrected. There are still nine more weeks left in order that you 
may have an opportunity to redeem yourselves. Each one of you will 
be paid by the following method: A-4 points; B-3 points: C-2 points - 
D-l point ; F-no credit 

"By this method of paying your salary, each student is rewarded

She now serves as teacher of English and Speech. Mrs. Idella

Falcons Win Touch Football 
Intramural Title 

The Intramural Touch Football 
Tournament was held among the 
men's physical education classes 
during regular class periods. Four 
teams were entered in the compe- 
tition: the Hawks, Falcons, Colts 
and the Raiders. 

This tournament was held to 

teach the student the . art of 

sportsmanship, fair play, and the 

desire to win cleanly. 

The tournament lasted for three 



ioned graces, loved by her parents, 
and admired by all her elders. 

Ihere is a lot more to the story 
than it would be fair to report 
here. As purely purposeful diver- 
sion it ranks with "Dracula," and 
sometimes sets your spine to ting- 
ling. The date of this production 
will be announced later.
